aonkxjdnwlj :  sounds perfect to me but I’m not your future wife. Is she into Pinterest  type proposals or is she more low key? If she likes attention and grand gestures then I would rethink your action plan. If not then its perfect!

Don’t forget to include some heartfelt words and to get on your knee when you propose! A lot of ladies like the traditional aspect of that. Also maybe do some flowers, cheese and champagne to enjoy the sunset after the proposal or champagne and a fruit platter/ pastries if you propose at sunrise. To sit together and enjoy some quiet time after the proposal watching the sunset/sunrise and enjoying something delicious would be the icing on the cake!

Congrats on your upcoming engagement! It honestly sounds like a lovely way to be proposed to and I’m sure she will love it! Enjoy your weekend together!

Speaking from experience, less is often definitely more – the more you have the more can go wrong and ruin it altogether. What you’ve planned seems lovely, and in tune with things you like to do together.

Besides, once the ring is on her finger, everything else will just melt away….

That sounds like a great proposal, one of my favourites I’ve read lately. But you are not proposing to me. Has your gf talked about her proposal and what she wants?

cmsgirl :  yep second this, maybe have something to enjoy on the balcony together post proposal. Her favourite wine if she drinks or in my case probably a latte ๐Ÿ˜€ and fruit or her favourite dessert would be lovely. Then you can eat/drink and enjoy the sunset together. 

If you do it in the morning have some kind of plan for what do do with he rest of the day. It could just be going and lazing at the beach if that’s what your into. Just avoid the “I dunno what do you wanna do” date approach post proposal, have an plan at least you can always change it if that’s what she wants later. 

Is your Girlfriend a morning person, I am NOT so I would much prefer a sunset proposal rather than a morning one. Not sure I would be awake enough to realise what was going on until most of the way through if I was surprised awoken for a sunrise view, even if beautiful. I am sure you know which she would prefer at this point so just a thought.

Good Luck Bee let us know how it goes

This sounds so sweet! My bet is she will love it. Obviously, I can’t speak for your girlfriend, but most women I’ve talked to would prefer something low key like this as opposed to some grand, public gesture. I know I was that way. The photo lights are a beautiful touch. 

I would just roll with the weather. Cloudy skies can make for stunning sunsets. Good luck!

This sounds great!! Maybe a bouquet of flowers and/or champagne for after? Might be hard to hide those from her in the hotel room, but just an idea ๐Ÿ™‚ The string lights/pictures sound so sweet and romantic!

If you learn from her or anyone else that she thought YOUR PLAN was “too simple” take some time to seriously consider whether you’re down for the same kind of reaction 24\7\365 for the next 50 years or so.
